Chris Webber announced his retirement after 15 NBA seasons on Wednesday. Webber finished with career averages of 20.7 points, 9.8 rebounds and 4.2 assists.

Four of those players (Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, Billy Cunningham and Elgin Baylor) are in the Hall of Fame. One of them (Kevin Garnett), will surely be inducted once he decides to call it quits.

    From Fab Five to #1 NBA draft pick to NBA Rookie of the year, C – Webb definitely deserves at least at look.

    The Hall of Fame recognizes the best of the best. The Committee should look at his accomplishments and leadership throughout is storybook NBA 5-time A-Star career.
